Demi Moore‘s daughters Rumer, 21, Scout, 18, and Tallulah, 15, are now grown, but the Ghost star tells Elle magazine that she remembers well her days of “pushing the boundaries” in Hollywood as a new mom and an aspiring actress.
The 47-year-old mom-of-three, who famously posed pregnant and naked for the cover of Vanity Fair in 1991, says that things have changed a lot since she first got her start in the industry.
“I didn’t have a lot of role models in Hollywood and I probably pushed a little hard. But I’m hard-headed. I look at women like Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon, actresses who are also young mothers, and I realise it’s not even a question now. Risk taking scares the s**t out of me. I always feel that I’m going to fail, which is a terrible thing. I can be my own worst enemy.”
Now married to actor Ashton Kutcher, Demi says she’s committed to using her fame to help others.
“I’ve been given a window into a life, and I may not know why but it’s not for me to question. It’s more important for me to just shut up and listen and give. Even if I don’t know what it is that I’ve got to give.”
